What a Week

I've been spending way too much time and attention to this event tonight over the past few days. The RSVP list hit 90 and we started a waiting list. Then that reached 35 people. There are always last minute crazy details to attend to, things that don't work out as thought, but other stuff turns out better than expected. I'm nervous about tonight but I'm sure it'll be a success in the end. Am I the only one who gets anxious when planning a big event?

If you haven't read her blog or found her on DailyMile, Erica is a runner and jewelry designer in NYC and she graciously donated a piece of her art for our raffle tonight! Go and check out her blog and designs. She even creates race bling!

The muscle behind my knee is still bothering me a little. I wore high heels to work today, which I rarely ever do, and oddly enough, the muscles hurt less than when I wear flats. Emily H thinks a muscle might be irritated and by wearing heels the muscle isn't stretched as far when I walk which might help it feel better. As much as I like that idea, I don't plan on spending much time in heels. Yesterday it felt better as I ran farther and faster. I don't know. Today I decided to forgo my tempo run today and get on the elliptical instead. Definitely the right idea. It didn't bother me one bit during the workout and felt fine after, too! This week is a step back week on my training plan as well, so it's coming at a good time.

Okay, off to start the day. By this time tomorrow the NYRR YPC event will be over and we can start working on the next one (April 13th). Oh, and tomorrow, in celebration of St. Patrick's Day, I have a recipe for Irish Soda Bread to share with you!
  • Do you tend to get stressed out when planning an event?
  • How do you feel about Daylight Savings Time? I like the sunlight after work, but it's still dark when I finish my workout in the morning now! #fail

I plan a lot of events and things for work, and they're always stressful! Definitely not my favorite, but it's always great when they turn out well and when they're over!

Just keep in mind - the mornings will just slowly get lighter out earlier! ANd we get to see the beautiful sunrise :)

I'm sure it will go well even with more ladies than you expected. You've planned so many personal , volunteer and professional events , you would be great as a professional event planner !
